How To Make More Money at Work: You’re Worth It

If you’re unsure how to make more money at work,

Are Women Too Emotional in the Workplace? The Myth and the Truth


Are women too emotional in the workplace?

Have you ever been accused of being “too emotional?” I have.

Look, it’s obvious: women are wired differently than men and are wired to crave connection.

This is why a little girl will give her toy to someone on the playground if she thinks it will cause them to be her friend — even if she’s heartbroken over the loss of the toy.

In the workplace, a woman will typically sacrifice pay, prestige, influence, and title for connection with others.

Which is why we underperform.

So why would anyone accuse women of being too emotional in the workplace — or anywhere?

There’s darkness — something terrible and disruptive — that the hero must face to become who she’s born to be.

This pandemic is that dark force for so many of us. It has disrupted the way we live, work, and relate to each other. It is the disrupting force of our time.

Fact is, you’ve been hoovering down my contents like I’m a bag of skittles. It’s making me wonder…

Sometimes the body uses pain as a warning. Or it could be more accurate to say that your soul uses the body to send you messages.
